STREAMS Incident Management System (SIMS) is used by traffic management centres to manage road networks through detection, verification, logging and response to unplanned incidents such as accidents, planned events such as roadwork, and equipment faults. To read more about the STREAMS Incident Management System, please download our STREAMS features brochure.
SIMS reduces the impact of incidents and faults by providing:
|Verification and logging of incident details||Location-based logging|
|Device-based fault identification||Cross-regional and cross-organisational handover of incidents and events|
Flexibility in multiple operator access to managing incidents and events
Automatic customisation of generic response plans to create tailored response plans for each incident
|Reports that facilitate the review of trends and performance, leading to improved response.|
SIMS improves the response to incidents which reduces recovery times. Quick and effective response to incidents is critical because for every minute an accident remains uncleared, it typically takes an additional four minutes for traffic to recover.
Community benefits from rapid incident clearance include
Reduced fuel consumption and emissions
Reduced travel times
